Determine whether each triple ( a , b , c ) is a Pythagorean triple. a)     ( 8 , 15 , 17 )                                                                                       c)     ( 6 , 8 , 10 )         b)     ( 10 , 13 , 19 )                                                                                 d)       ( 11 , 17 , 20 )

To determine

(a)

To Find:

Which triple is a Pythagorean triple.

Explanation

Given triple is (8,15,17).

From the Pythagorean Theorem,

The square of the length of hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the square of the lengths of the other two sides.

Let c be the hypotenuse and a, b are the sides then,

c2=a2+b2

Now given triple (8,15,17) then,

82+152

To determine

(b)

To Find:

Which triple is a Pythagorean triple.

To determine

(c)

To Find:

Which triple is a Pythagorean triple.

To determine

(d)

To Find:

Which triple is a Pythagorean triple.
